The Bangladesh Cricket Board said on Tuesday that they are now willing to give a no-objection certificate to their cricketers to take part in the remainder of the 2021 Indian Premier League, as the home series against England is rescheduled.

BCB had earlier stated that they are not willing toss give a no-objection certificate to Shakib al Hasan and Mustafizur Rahman to take part in the remainder of the 2021 IPL as they expected them to be with the national team for the preparations of the upcoming ICC T20 World Cup.

However, the decision of ECB and BCB to postpone England's tour of Bangladesh to March 2023 has opened door for the duo to take part in the remainder of IPL.

''Yes, if they apply and if we don't have any international commitment they can go and take part in IPL. We are yet to receive any official letter from them in this regard and if we get that, board will take a decision,'' BCB cricket operation chairman Akram Khan told Cricbuzz on Tuesday.

Bangladesh were scheduled to host England for three ODIs and as many T20Is, which would have served as preparations for the T20 World Cup.
